HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Aspen Dental will provide a day of free dental care for local veterans in the Myrtle Beach, Conway, and Florence area on Saturday, June 25 from 9:00 a.m. to  5:00 p.m. as a part of their Healthy Mouth Movement initiative.

The Healthy Mouth Movement was launched in 2014 to deliver free dental care and oral health education to people in need, according to Aspen Dental’s media release.

Many U.S. veterans are not enrolled for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health benefits, and more than 1.2 million lack health insurance altogether, states Aspen Dental media release. This year will be Aspen Dental’s second annual and their goal is to be the largest single-day oral health initiative targeted at veterans.

Appointments are on a first-come, first-serve basis at:

  • 1209 N Retail Court, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
  • 2756 Church St, Conway, SC 29526
  • 2160 W Evans St Ste 60, Florence, SC 29501

Local veterans can call 1-844-AspenHMM to schedule an appointment in advance.
